WHO SHOULD ATTEND?

Anyone who’s new to governance and trusteeship or existing trustees and senior staff who would benefit from a refresher course. This course could also form part of an induction for a new trustee, 

The course has been very clear and great for a first time trustee. The governance wheel is a very useful tool for understanding what my charity is doing well at or needs to improve. As a brand new trustee this helps me know what questions I should be asking. Hugh Roderick - Tameside South and Longdendale Foodbank
Excellent training and great use of virtual tools -very well presented. Sharon Callaghan, Rusland Horizons Trust
